COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.
The aroma of this beer is agreeably gentle and is carried by a discreet bitterness while the balance between the malt and hops relies on fruity accents and a lightly fresh aftertaste.

Bottle sampled at home from old notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a large white head. The aroma and,flavor have sweet malts, honey, mild citrus, straw, some alcohol shows, easy to drink, just not my favorite style.

Bottle. Typical triple pour, murky honey color with strong frothy head. Beautiful. Fresh but yeasty aroma: grains, soap, young cheese, pepper, touch of vanilla. Reminds of Westmalle. Taste is a very robust, beautifully balanced, traditional Triple. Fresh grains, infused with a touch of dried lemon, vanilla, pepper. Creamy. Reminds of Karmeliet. Aftertaste is sweet, dried apricots. Style-defining quality beer.

Maakun (1174) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear golden with big fuzzy white head. Sweet malts, came sugar, plums, strong sweet white wine, spicy yeast with some cloves and pepper, lemon peel, herbal bitter towards the finish. Medium bodied with slight sticky feel and full creamy carbonation. Really good, slightly too sweet for me but a classic in the style.

butelka, warka do 20 05 16, Ladna, bujna piana, niestety opadajaca do obraczki, na szczesnie nie az tak szybko. Ladne, opalizujace, jasne, zoltawo-miodowe w barwie piwo. Aromaty typowo triplowe - sa slody, drozdze (dosc malo), owocowosc (brzoskwinia, banan), lekka przyprawowosc, lekkie nuty trawiaste... milo. Smak pasujacy do aromatu, slodki, w tle kwaskowaty, z odczuciami na jezyku towarzyszacymi drobnemu i w sumie niezbyt wysokiemu jak na tripla wysyceniu, gladka faktura, cialo srednie, alkohol ladnie ukryty. Nie ma sie kompletnie do czego przyczepic w tym triplu, tyle, ze brakuje tez tematow do gloryfikacji ;)

MonkeyFactory (3) - FRANCE - MAR 3, 2015 does not count
Une bière qui me paraît bâclée et imprécise. Il y a quelque chose qui sature le palais. Je la trouve lourde pour un faible degré. Plutôt indigeste. Manque de co2...

Robe dorée, belle mousse. Nez de houblon sur un fond de levure et d’épices. Bouche à l’attaque élégante, amertume discrète, beaucoup de rondeur et finale houblonnée. Un triple sur l’élégance plutôt que la puissance

330 mL bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour, some yeast around. Tall frothy white head, fair bit of lace on the glass as the head slowly drops. Sweet aroma, fair bit of fruit, apple, orange, and yeast. Taste has a similar fruity taste, bread malt taste. Body has a fair bit of fizzy carbonation.

330 ml bottle from LCBO. Hazy yellow with lots of bubbly white head. Nose is fruit, spices, Belgian yeast. Frothy, soft mouthfeel. Taste has deep fruity esters, peach, apricot. Flavours are nice, but mild. Trifecta is present, tart, sweet, bitter. You really have to look for the bitterness.
